I absolutely love this bag! It is great for books and magazines. It is stylish and enlegant the leather is of great quality and it will last a long time. This bag is solidly made and retains its shape without the need to put more stuff in it, as well as stands on its own. You will love this bag especially if you are a business women and need to carry papers with you. The long strap can be ajusted so you can carry it across your body if you wanted to. I personally think that this is a unisex bag. I got the brown one and I think that I will get another just to have different colors.
